temperature. and when you pile on the humidity, it's a huge difference maker. the big question people have is, when is this going to end? when can we expect some relief? the changes are going to come. we're going to see a lot of the temperatures begin to revert back to where they should be this time of year, into the 70s, the 80s, and some places in the 90s. but that's going to feel better than what you're going to get today. 99 will be your high, expected in new york today. 98 in boston. 102 in our nation's capital. 90s in chicago, back into kansas city, 100 in dallas. and the heat continues into the front range of rockies, the central rockies, and even back to the great basin. the big changes we're going to see, from the highs in the 100s and upper 90s, will come from the big dome of high pressure we've had, that's been over at least half the nation. we'll see this big ridge begin to break down. and when it breaks down, it will create a void, and then a frontal boundary will replace it. it's not going to be frigid, but it will take an edge off that heat in places like boston, chicago, and p

the arrest of rebekah brooks. she's out on bail right now, but her arrest over the weekend a big surprise. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, she was -- the length that she was detained for was incredible as well. 12 hours she spent -- more than 12 hours in a police station in london answering questions, and she wasle only released around midnight last night local time. so that was a huge development in this. she's out on police bail now, but that doesn't mean she's excused from appearing before a committee of mps tomorrow london time. she's still going to turn up and be careful about what she says, and the politicians are going to have to be careful about what they ask her as well. there could be a trial down the track if she's charged, and therefore they're going to make sure under the rules here that they don't sort of prejudice any forthcoming trial. nevertheless i think she's going to get a pretty tough interrogation at the hands of politicians as will her former bosses rupert and james murdoch who appear now separately from her before the same committee tomorrow afternoon. >> dan, let me as

to that. what i was thinking about today, in one sense, no. it doesn't matter which plan. a big investor think both plans are really band-aid plans and none of them deal significantly with what i like to call the big three. medicare, medicaid and social security. in the short material, either deal will probably be enough. really interesting this afternoon, when i was talking to an investor who had met with the ratings agency at standard & poors talking about the downgrade. could it raise interest rates the same way a potential default could. they said the boehner plan probably wouldn't hit the hurried tol prevent a downgrade. even if that was reached, you could still get a downgrade. it is unsure whether that would happen. the reid plan, even though a lot of the parts of that are seen by many as gimmicks, probably would pass that hurdle and you wouldn't get that immediate downgrade. that's an interesting distinction. >> stand by for a moment. i want to bring back kate and jessica. there is a harry reid plan and a john boehner plan. given the stakes involved, why not have these two gentle

this if there is a framework. they are pushing for something big. trils of dollars in deficit savings the course of ten years. reminder of the moving parts that a deal like that would require the next several days major spending cuts, tax reform, entitlement reform and if democrats in the white house were to get their way, tax increases. you can see that is pretty much a heavy lift and so you still have a lot of people looking to a more modest deal that the top democrat and republican in the senate, harry reid and mitchell mcconnell are trying to work out which would be more spending cuts and perhaps more modest and perhaps giving the president the unenviable position to have to increase the debtcele himself with a minority support from congress. >> brianna keilar, thanks. >>> government is scrambling to pay its bills here is something americans don't want to hear. billions of dollars in your tax money is being wasted in afghanistan or worse. a new federal audit says that some of that cash may be funding, are you ready for this? the same insurgency that is killing americans. chris lawrence is at the pentagon
was the scene like outside? we're showing some of the video here, people had signs up but how big of a crowd, how rowdy of a crowd? >> reporter: there were hundreds of people out there. the emotions seemed to be just the same as what we had seen outside the courthouse, particularly after the verdict was read. this time there was a sense of a moment, a crescendo of emotion right there at the moment of release. people gathered there just for anticipating that event, they were prepared to shout the things they had been thinking about for the past couple of weeks. it was that moment, everything did transpire peacefully, again, there was a heavy police presence. there were a lot of officers on horseback to make sure the crowd stayed where they were supposed to stay and the suv casey anthony was in was able to leave without any problems what sofr. this transpired in a matter of seconds. she walked out, she got into a vehicle, the vehicle sped away on to the expressway. minutes after that, the hundreds of people that were there dispersed and presumably went home. >> david mattingly, we appreciate i

this big deal, but this thing broke up today. the meeting ended with the president telling these leader toss go back to their members and ask them what do they think can pass and then report back to the president with something that they believe can pass by this saturday morning. they're not even having a meeting tomorrow. now, despite all that, i am told by my sources that there's not a lot of optimism that this particular negotiating process here at the white house is going to actually end up lead together real deal, and a lot of effort and attention is now turning to a different process that's happening in the u.s. senate and another all the ate deal that's being worked out between the two senate leaders that could instead end up raising the debt ceiling. a lot of hope is centered there, anderson. >> basically what is that deal, that negotiation based on? harry reid and mitch mcconnell? >> reid-mcconnell deal. it would effectively raise the debt ceiling in a negative vote which would allow for spending cuts that can be spelled out by the president but don't necessarily have to pass.
. the personalities here. there is a collapse here. i think what is important in the big picture is it was groundhog's day over the collapse although yesterday was a very dramatic day. that is tax increases. when you heard the speaker saying that the president had moved the goal post, he was talking about an insistence on $400 billion in tax increases that he said essentially the white house put there on the table at the last minute. then you heard from president obama yesterday, a very frustrated president obama, that he did not understand why the speaker was walking away from really what the white house sees as a sweet deal considering how much it has wrinkled the rank and file. you heard the president say he felt like he had been left at the altar by speaker boehner. let's listen to both sides. >> i just got a call about a half hour ago from the speaker himself. can they say yes to anything? we have now put forward a package that would significantly cut deficits and debt. it would be the biggest debt reduction package we have seen in a long time. it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m

"the sun" is maintaining it got the medical records without breaking the law.

the -- prevent the u.s. from going into default. the big question is, can all of this be done by the critical august 2nd deadline? and what the white house has been clear to point out in the past, the president would be willing to support any kind of short-term deal for one or two days if they need to cross the ts and dot the is of a potential agreement. the president would be willing to embrace something like that. so that's what we'll be watching closely over the next few hours, fredricka. >> dan, despite the fact that they had a vote, kind of procedural vote on that senate majority leader harry reid's plan today, when nancy pelosi and reid went to the white house last night, was that the beginning of working out this kind of framework? >> reporter: well, it's unclear whether that was actually the beginning of, you know, working on the particular framework. what we do know is that they're looking at the last 24 hours as a period when significant progress was made. so whether it's direct talks that was taking place with democrats and the president or with republicans and the president, as ka
is a big part of reason why. before i served in coming, i ran a small business in ohio. i was amazed at how different washington, d.c. operated than every other business in america. where most american businesses make the hard choices to pay their bills, live within their means, in washington, more spending and more debt is business as usual. i've got news for washington. those days are over. president obama came to congress in january and requested business as usual. he had another routine increase in the national debt but we in the house said, not so fast. here was a president asking for the largest debt increase in american history on the heels of the largest spending binge in american history. here's what we got for that massive spending binge. a new health care bill that most americans never asked for. a stimulus bill that is more effective in producing material for late night comedians than for producing job. a national debt that has gotten so out of hand, it sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours. the united states cannot default on its debt obligations. the jobs

that a big deal is hard to get. he seemed open to whatever republicans might be discussing up there on the hill. the president saying that if they have something that is a serious plan and they bring it to him, then he might be willing to move on it, even if it requires making some tough decision. the president was also asked about the so-called mcconnell plan which would raise the debt limit in three different increements through the end of 2012. here's what the president had to say about that. >> if washington operates as usual and can't get anything done, let's at least avert armageddon. >> reporter: so you avert armageddon because it takes care of problem number one, which is essentially raising the debt ceiling, but it doesn't take care of problem two, which is making any significant reductions in the deficit issue and the debt problem. so it does appear, at least based on what the president was saying, that he will at least be open to something that will prevent the u.s. from going into default and resulting in higher interest rates for all americans, which the president
